Ukulele is a musical instrument that belongs to the lute family and very close in appearance with the guitar. It is an instrument used from the ancient times and still very loved today. It usually comes in four nylon or gut strings or four courses of strings which may be paired to give a total of four or six strings. It is an instrument that originated from the Hawaiian adaptation of the Portuguese machete which is also guitar-like instrument. Ukulele which is also called Uke became popular in the United States in the 20th century and since has been widely used. It is made in different size and construction which makes the tone and volume differ as well. They are made in four sizes which include; Soprano, concert, tenor and baritone. All the types are however very friendly to beginners but in other to be able to pick your choice as a beginner, you need to know some things about each of the four types.
